Names are notoriously tricky for pronunciation- when English speakers are giving the names and addresses to other native speakers, they often have to spell things.
- Alecky Blythe I would say /blaɪð/
- Anna Deavere Smith /dəvɪə/ (it could equally be /dəʊvɪə/)
- verbatim /vɜ:beɪtɪm/ (Cambridge gives /vɝːˈbeɪ.t ̬əm/ as the American pronunciation)
